An all round well written and read book. Nice detail of historical events and locations. I enjoyed the reading - enough accents without the overblown hard to understand nuances many readers bring. I did not want it to end. Very realistic as in that all the endings of the inner stories did not all turn out the way we might want them to… gave the book a very realistic feel.
Wound up wishing it were longer...wanted to know what is going to happen next. I will be waiting for the sequel.
Good book- had a decent ending but you can tell it is set up for book 2.
This was a fun and easy book, a little simple in places and a bit predictable - but with just enough surprises and twists to keep you listening.
One of those books where you find yourself talking to the characters like you would a b-grade horror flick- "NO! Dont do that!" but fun anyway.
This is a fun book. The narrator was animated but not unduly so. Completely enjoyed it and only wished there was a yearly installment to this anthology to look forward to!
Fun listen - as always the narrator did an awesome job. You always knew who is taking or thinking...and the inflections make me chuckle out loud, causing funny looks in public.
While parts of the writing may seem to be a bit 'young adult' there a few steamy parts that I would not want my teen nieces to hear - but nothing too x rated. An all round fun read.
The narrator was easy to listen to and the Cinderella theme was not too overbearing.
I have read these authors individually and now in a book of shorts - they shine! I would recommend this anthology to any who want a good listen, and especially if you want quicker bites for short commutes or...
I found myself laughing out loud at times and not wanting to put this one down. It was lighter than some in this genre but still very firmly within the expectations.
with twists and turns I was not expecting!
The series was beginning to pale for me - this book set it afire again.
Quite early in the book there is a distressing development - I almost put the book down thinking I didn't really want a stressful book. After half a day though, I found I had become so attached to the main character that I had to come back to the book...
I am so very glad I listened all the way through. You may be too.
This book has lodged in my brain and I will never be the same. I found it hard to sleep a couple of nights thinking how I would handle the situations presented in the book.
There is a feeling of reality to the story that is difficult it these days of overblown horror novels.
